Theory of Change
APANO’s Theory of Change defines the impact we aim to make and the individual, institutional and cultural shifts we believe are necessary to bring that change to fruition.
The core of APANO’s work is building a powerful base of members who create and lead solutions that address real issues in their communities and shift the balance of power.
APANO aims to grow the analysis, skills and confidence of Asian and Pacific Islanders to improve their lives and achieve social justice for generations to come.
Cultural Work mobilizes artists, cultural producers and community members to amplify their voices, influence popular narratives and build power.
